Prince Andrew ignores resignation calls as he visits Crossrail offices
UNDER-fire Royal Prince Andrew visited the Canary Wharf Crossrail offices this morning where he was confronted by dozens of waiting photographers and journalists.
The UK’s Special Representative for Trade and Investment smiled as he stepped from his chauffeur-driven Bentley and was met by Crossrail chairman Terry Morgan.
Andrew, heavily criticised for his friendship with jailed US tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, jailed for child sex offences, did not respond as a journalist shouted: “Are you an embarrassment to the Royal Family?”
He had a tour of the Canary Wharf offices and met senior managers from the project despite calls for his resignation in the Goverment position. A spokesman or Crossrail said he spoke to managers about the input UK construction and design teams are having and what the �15 billion project will do for the UK economy.
The Duke left the offices looking relaxed and again ignored questions shouted by the waiting media before being driven away.

He said: “As you would expect, we had him for an hour and we talked about Crossrail.
